Join the Conference Inclusion Committee!
We're forming a group of chapter leaders to identify ways we can make the 2016 conference more diverse and inclusive. No experience in event planning or planning inclusive events is required, although it is welcome! We would also like to make sure that there are at least a few committee members who have attended the conference in the past.
Some of the topics this committee might cover:
- How to make the conference more welcoming and inclusive
- Adjustments we might want to make to the physical facilities, such as designating gender neutral bathrooms and a nursing room, or arranging rooms to be wheelchair accessible
- Developing a conference code of conduct and/or guidelines for discussing sensitive issues like race and identity
If you're interested in participating in this committee, please reach out to Jamie at email@example.com.
